Preparing 21st century students for real world challenges requires the use of sustainable technology to help improve their academic achievements. Acer goal is to assist educators and administrators in improving the learning process providing them with innovative and interactive solutions. The key features that are necessary for schools have now been integrated into the new Acer S5201M projector, such as LAN control, display over USB, Lens Shift, Ultra-Short Throw projection to help creating a compelling learning environment.
Specifically developed for the educational segment, the S5201M features the innovative Interactive Whiteboard solution, a technology that transforms a standard screen into an interactive one that can be operated directly via the Acer SmartPen. With the SmartPen, teachers and students can launch applications, open and close windows just like using a mouse. Or, users can draw or make comments on the projected image, making lessons more appealing and interactive. What’s more, the SmartPen allows users to interact with the projected image directly by simply touching the screen or remotely, drawing or operating applications from a distance, thus affording greater flexibility.
The Crestron Network System offers complete control of the projector via LAN. This solution offers several powerful capabilities, including monitoring, remote power on/off (may be scheduled), remote projection management, multiple-projector control, emergency text broadcasting, online dialogue with the system administrator and e-mail alert system, etc. In addition, Remote desktop function allows users to remotely access any PC which is activated via the Acer eProjection utility and connected to the projector via LAN. By simply connecting a keyboard and mouse to the projectors users can access a PC located in another room.
The Acer S5201M can also transform any lesson into a stunning 3D experience. The three-dimensional experience is made possible by DLP 3D Ready technology that, using high (120 Hz) refresh rates, can transform the flat surface of the room wall into a 3D screen. The possibilities unlocked by this simple solution are limited only by our imagination: exploring the incredible human anatomy or the universe in 3D detail; touring famous archaeological sites just like being there…
With Ultra-Short Throw capability, this projector can display large images even if it is placed very close to the screen. At a distance of just 1 meter sharp and accurate images can be displayed with a diagonal of up to 205 cm (81”). Thanks to this feature presenters can avoid projector beams in the eyes and don’t cast shadows on the screen during their presentations. As a result the S5201M offers greater flexibility and maximum viewing comfort, making it ideal for education.
The quality of images is warranted by top-class technologies designed to enhance colour accuracy and sharpness. The S5201M reproduces images with more natural and balanced shades, achieving truly lifelike tones, thanks to Acer ColorBoost II+ featuring an optimised 6-segment colour wheel design, a powerful image processor and an advanced lamp waveform to improve colour performance. Colour brightness is enhanced and automatically adapted to the displayed content with the aid of Acer eView Management.
Over time, projectors can be affected by colour decay that adds a yellowish or greenish shade to the images on screen. Now Acer’s projectors take advantage of ColorSafe II, DLP® technology and Acer unique colour compensation technology on the optical components to ensure picture integrity even after prolonged use, making them virtually immune to colour decay.
An HDMI port provides seamless connection to the latest digital sources ensuring exceptional high-definition viewing. The advanced lamp technology with illumination of up to 3000 ANSI lumens a 3000:1 contrast ratio and native XGA resolution help bringing a new level of brightness, colour and clarity to the images.
Thanks to the innovative wall-colour compensation feature, the projector can display colours accurately even when the image is projected on a coloured wall. The user simply has to choose the wall colour in the OSD menu, and the projector intelligently compensates the colour of the displayed image. In addition, the 40° Vertical Keystone Correction fixes vertical distortions so that the displayed image is always perfectly rectangular, no matter where the projector is placed and lastly, users can easily change the lamp module even when the projector is mounted on the ceiling thanks to the Acer Top-loading Lamp design.
Up to 4000 hours of lamp life save lamp replacement costs ensuring long-term dependable projector use. The extended lifespan and consistent image quality lower the total cost of ownership and translate to big savings. Further savings are ensured by the innovative DLP chip, enabling a filter-free design for lower maintenance and operating costs
What’s more, the S5201M comes with Acer EcoProjection, an environment friendly management solution that reduces standby power consumption by up to 80%. The projector automatically enters ECO mode if there isn’t any input signal for 5 minutes, with up to 20% additional power savings and automatically performs a safety shutdown if it does not receive input for a certain time. Also included in the Acer EcoProjection suite is Acer ePower Management, a tool that lets you create customised power-saving configurations.
To improve ease-of-use, Acer projectors are equipped with Empowering Technology, a suite of tools designed to simplify access to simple setup, viewing and timer utilities, making you more productive and helping get the right message across first time.
Acer S5201M video-projector comes with 5 years warranty on the DLP chip and 1 year warranty on the lamp.
